Hamilton Musical Review (Disney+ Movie vs. Theatre Version)

Awesome to watch the Hamilton Musical on Disney Plus performed by the original cast led by Lin-Manuel Miranda as the author and lead actor to celebrate the American Independence Day weekend.

Hamilton is a theatre hip hop musical about the story of the United States Founding Fathers particularly Alexander Hamilton. We watched Hamilton at the West End in London last 2018.

Here’s what we think about what we like about the theatre movie version vs. the live theatre production.

First Things First

This is one of our memorable dates with Rache watching the sold-out West End production of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London last March 2018.  We almost missed this but luck was on our side, someone returned 2 tickets and we immediately grabbed that opportunity even if it was out of our budget.  I did not want to let this pass while we were in London.

10X Your Digital Marketing! (Now Open for Registrations)

The game has changed over the lockdown and we are now faced with a digital-first world. We’ve been evangelizing this for years in Manila but now the time has come. The winner in this digital marketing game is not the one with the best brand or the one who has the most money for marketing, but the one who can adapt to the changing dynamics of the post-Corona virus world.

If you are just new to this marketing craft, the past digital marketing success does not matter because everything was reset and we are all back to zero. Don’t use strategies and tactics that worked in the past.  Lean forward to what would work with the changing behaviors and lifestyle habits of the audience you serve.

It’s hard to do it alone or even ask another person who don’t know anything about digital marketing. What if you can leap frog with new ideas and strategies to 10X the organic effectivity of your marketing? What if you can work with mentors, forever-newbie learners, and experts to navigate and quickly adapt to what happens next?

I love this Copper / Brass Mask by Filipino Artist Vincent “Vitty” Gutierrez from Antipolo. Copper material is best known for its microbial properties that kill bacteria and viruses upon contact with the material.

It’s the best gift for Father’s Day that looks cool, functional and can be your memento of the Covid War.
